The Brazilian footballer wants to leave Paris Saint-Germain and he seems to be set to returning to Barcelona in the Spanish La Liga.

The Neymar Junior soap opera continues with a new chapter.

The footballer has said he would ask Barcelona for forgiveness if they let him back into the team.

While he failed to report to the first Paris Saint-Germain’s training sessions.

And today PSG’s manager Thomas Tuchel has explained that the Brazilian wanted to leave the club way before the start of the 2019 Copa America.

“I am always disappointed when a player turns up late but it is clear between us, now it is between the club and Neymar,” Tuchel told reporters according to talkSPORT.

“I knew he wanted to leave before the Copa America but it is something between the club and player.”

“I am the coach, he’s my player. If he is in the locker room, this is my player and I work with him,” he added.

“But I am ready for everything and have to adapt every day.”
